Children are often the first to suffer from living below the poverty line and not being able to access fundamental services such as education, healthcare or housing. Approximately 15% of children in Nicaragua are forced to work to help provide for their families, and in turn have limited or no access to education. Panorama believes it is important for children have access to books, writing desks, clean water sources and latrines, and we have organized expeditions specifically serving the children in our Nicaragua Compact communities. Panorama expeditions have improved educational facilities, provided a school campus kitchen, and taught ESL programs in rural communities. PSE also works to improve the daily lives and living facilities in all of our communities, including a childrens home run by local nuns, El Hogar del Divino Rostro.
